Default Cox Marine CXO300 diesel outboard engines arrive at Power Products!

Cox Marine CXO300 diesel outboard engines arrive at Power Products! The CXO300 redefines marine propulsion, delivering a remarkable 300 horsepower at the propeller and 480 ft. lbs. of torque. This commercial rated diesel outboard is not only a new, innovative product but it also promises 30% better fuel efficiency, three times longer life and is the first outboard engine to have a PDM.

Running with a diesel outboard will net you a boost in reliability, longevity, and economy. So, why doesn’t everyone do it? Aside from initial cost – the CXE300 is expected to go for around $50,000, or about twice the cost of a gasoline outboard with the same amount of power – weight is a big issue. And yes, these engines do weigh significantly more than their gasoline counterparts. The new 4.6-liter Mercury V8 FourStroke, for example, has a listed weight of 538 pounds; Yamaha’s F300 Offshore V6 weighs 562 pounds; and the Suzuki DF300A tips the scales at 639 pounds. The Cox tops them all significantly, with a dry weight of 826 pounds.

I would be interested if these newer diesels didn't rely on electronics. This makes them about as reliable as the gas outboards.

Perfect timing with the gas outboard shortage

There is in Invincible (either 36' or 39') in Galveston with 3x300 Cox and they are getting some impressive fuel numbers. And, it isn't any slower than a gas setup.

It will follow the path of diesel engines in small airplanes. Lots of teething problems, but eventually somebody will make one worth a damn https://www.aviationpros.com/engines...tdiesel-engine

diesels do perform at a higher thermal efficiency. There is an added cost and maintenance. They are common rail design with electronic injectors, like all other designs for emissions limits. There is likely additional devices to limit emissions but so far, particle filters and exhaust gas coolers and recirculation are not required for off road use.
with anything new from a new company, parts access, factory service tech availability and skills, will be a challenge. These are not for typical center consoles for home owners, these are intended for yacht tenders that are on super yachts that carry diesel fuel and want to avoid storing gasoline for tender use.
electric tenders are coming too, especially in europe.

Don't want to get all green on people and I know that THT has a major bias against diesels, but for those who car about emissions and environmental, a development of diesel technology is better than any other alternatives besides sails. Less refining for the fuel, better efficiency which in turn is less emissions.

A new producer will have alot of kinks to work out and even best case scenario would take years to try and establish themselves, build a network, parts supply, etc, but the benefits here are tangible.

Superior diesel is a dealer for them and I saw them launching quite a few times at a local ramp in Charleston SC, so I asked the guy on the boat and he said it was about $60k
